I cringe every time I see guys that we had committed or were close on starring for other teams.

 

Decker was committed until Meyer signed, right?

I am pretty sure that we were close with Elliot, too.

 

I saw Mattingly playing well for Oregon, too.

 

Yep. I still remember him saying even late in the process that he was 100% Irish, and then.....................he wasn't.

Posts like these make my eyes bleed.

 

ND has as much raw talent as the National Champion, who won despite playing their 3rd QB.

 

Meanwhile, ND was 8-5 because of "injuries".

 

Wake up folks.

 

it is quite eye opening, right?

 

the only thing in this equation that stands out is maybe not all "stars" are created equal? and I mean recruiting stars.

 

even with the defense we should have been at worst 9-3 (and would have played another SEC team in bowl game?)

Nope. All stars are created equal, it is how they are molded at the next level that is the difference.

 

Ohio St. manhandled Oregon last night. ND's O-line has every bit the talent, if not more, but they are asked to pass block instead. Sad.

Yea, stuff like this...and watching with my eyeballs last night, doesn't make me to hopeful. Even if next years schedule or 2016 sets up nicely, you're still talking about beating two highly ranked teams and I'm not sure ND has what it takes. Personally, I don't think ND could have beaten Bama, Oregon, OSU or TCU even if they had everyone they had when they played FSU.

 

I don't claim to be a scout or a coach and would love for some of you to prove me wrong (no sarcasm; I really would like to hear any rebuttals) , I just don't see the same thing on the field (I seldom see ND dominate and push people around) when I watch ND play as some of these other teams.

Just because two people are given five yellow stars does not mean they have the same potential, the same talents or the same ceilings.

 

I think what you said about development is very important.

 

But we know BK has the ability, intelligence and staff to get the team to a national title game right? many of those guys were on 2012 staff. why were they good enough then but not good enough now?

Average pts for offense and defense are pretty equal. What's the difference between the 2 programs????

 

Depth for one. If you extend that list out into the 2 or 3 deep you'll notice some separation of talent (ranking). Also look at all the players on our defense that were hurt.

 

James Onwualu rating is for WR so his score taints the scorecard a little.

I agree. And it's also about how you fit. If Ezekiel Elliott came to ND I don't think he would have bulked up and be lowering his head and running up the gut the way he's doing in Columbus.

 

He'd be trying to become a good blocker like cam:(

I should remind people with a semi-healthy team we kicked LSU's butt all over the field with about the youngest team in the country.

 

Turnovers and injuries were the story of the season. $hit happens. The only disappointment this year was really too many t.o.'s from a qb who has a history of few.

 

Next years will be interesting.
